FOOTBALL: In a massive blow to Sunshine Coast Fire's hopes of a revived 2017, its current captain Grant de Chastel will join former Fire coach Kevin A'Herne-Evans at Noosa Lions next season.

It looks set to be the first of a "string of players returning to the Lions den” according to a statement made by the club.

de Chastel began his football career as a Noosa junior before earning in a spot in the now defunct Junior Premier League.

After years of impressive performances de Chastel earnt selection into the Queensland Academy of Sport and progressed to represent Brisbane Roar FC in the Senior Men's NPL.

This recent NPL season, de Chastel was club captain at the Fire, which finished 12th despite a mid-season revival.

A'Herne-Evans clearly holds de Chastel in high regards.

"Grant is a player that I thoroughly enjoyed working with during my time at Sunshine Coast Fire, I had no hesitation in giving Grant his debut and always said that the senior team should be built around Grant,” he said.

"For a young man, Grant has a maturity to his game and has high standards in relation to training which will continue to benefit the number of good young players we have at Noosa”

de Chastel known for his ability to suffocate the opposition midfield with his tenacity, was equally enthused about the future of Noosa Lions FC.

"I am excited to be returning to Noosa Lions and looking forward to working with Kevin again,” he said.

"Hopefully the upcoming 2017 season can be a very successful one for the entire Noosa Lions Football Club and first team.”

More to come.
